While the place will not win any architectural awards, the room was very large and spotless, I had low expectation and the place was very nice the staff even opened up the breakfast counter super early as we had a very early flight to catch, very close to blue lagoon so you can stay right up to closing time and...

My family and I stayed here for 2 nights in July. They provide a free shuttle to airport, which is very convenient and it is located right next to the Blu Lagoon Spa. Did I mention that it is in the middle of a lava field? The scenery is so different and beautiful - wild flowers growing up out of...

LOCATION: This hotel is 23km (14 mi) from the airport (KEF) an the hotel will provide a free shuttle for you. Hotel is literally in the middle of a large lava field between the airport and the town of Grindavik. Strangely enough it is right next to a somewhat large geothermal power plant. This is not a problem as the...

Set amongst lava flows and with a geothermal power station on its doorstep, this hotel would appear not to have much going for it! However the hotel was very well- appointed with lounge, honesty bar, complimentary tea/coffee, beautiful restaurant and, unusually, a tower for viewing the aurora - the views of the lava, etc are weird and add to the...

Apologies for not writing this review sooner! We stayed at the start of April. The location is excellent – very close to the Blue Lagoon and convenient for the airport. It’s right in a lava field so a very unusual setting, and next to a geothermal plant – we found this interesting and not a problem at all, but I...

Seriously overpriced for what you get. We were there in August 2015 and it looks like it is still under construction. The construction that is complete is a cross between Ikea, and an American Midwestern Sears/Good Housekeeping design from the 1970s. Perhaps an attempt and comfy and rustic but unfortunately just tacky. On top of that, the main view is...

Is the perfect place to recover, with the lagoon not far from the Hotel. only remark is the sourrounding of the hotel. instead of the beautiful Iceland nature sourrounding you, you will have a powerplant. otherwise is a nice place to stay.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful and the shuttle to the Blue Lagoon and the airport was very convenient and easy. This was a perfect stop on our last night in Iceland. It's close to the airport and a 5 minute shuttle to the Blue Lagoon.
